Fried murukku

  • After it cools down break them coarse and store it in airtight container.

Kara sev

  • You can use oota karandi(holed ladle) to make them as well (that is the traditional method i guess ) .By using murukku press it is so easy to prepare .
  • .If you wish you can add chili powder instead of red chili .Some even omit  red chili or chili powder .
  • You can omit garlic ,but i prefer adding it because we use besan as the main ingredient.
  • Don't over cook it then it will be burnt .If you under cook it sev will not be crunchy .
  • You can also increase rice flour if you wish the sev to be whiter .
  • I used thenkulal press for making this sev.

  5. I usually make it sev with besan flour only. I will try adding rice flour next time as it probably makes it more crispy. Looks really delicious. Thank you for linking the recipe to the diwali event.
